The Politics of Tech is Usually Pretty Simple
Whenever you read about some kind of political dispute over a tech issue, you should be aware that it's almost certainly really a fight among two or more of the following four groups:
- Cable companies
- Silicon Valley
Everything else is just fluff. There are occasional exceptions, but these four are usually all that matter.
This is apropos of nothing in particular. I just felt like passing it along. You may now go about your regular business.
